Alex Preston has made the Top 30 on the 13th season of American Idol. He is one of 15 boy contestants to make it, according to The Idol Pad.
The 13th season of American Idol premieres on Wednesday, January 15, 2013. Keith Urban is returning as a judge from his first season last year. Jennifer Lopez is coming back after taking one season off. Harry Connick Jr. is a new judge for the first time in Season 13. Randy Jackson is now the in-house mentor, and Jimmy Iovine is out.
A site called The Idol Pad has released spoilers in the past, and they have been a reliable source thus far. This and all other 30 spoiler articles I am writing are based on the list that The Idol Pad provided. Of course, there is no absolute guarantee that contestants listed here will actually make it. Singers can pretty much be eliminated at any time and for any reason. With that said, you can check out the full list of Top 30 spoilers for American Idol 13 here.
Contestant: Alex Preston
Alex is apparently a good musician and loves doing his own version of songs. This is a positive approach to participation on American Idol. He’ll need to really accentuate these overall musicianship skills to have a chance of winning. But his voice is probably too ordinary to win Idol. It is thin and slightly whiny.
I will add the YouTube video for Alex Preston’s audition as soon as it airs on American Idol.
